Counterterrorism specialist, Navy SEAL, and CIA/Special Forces leader Lt. Ken Ratham captures Wahamad Duar, the world's most wanted terrorist, in the Sudanese desert. Charged with a long list of terrorist crimes, Duar is brought to a U.S. ship for a tribunal trial. Meanwhile, Ratham is brought up on charges that he tortured one of Duar's men to death. Reader Christopher Lane energetically gives life to this action-packed plot. A variety of accents comfortably identifies the foreign characters, while changes in pace, diction, and style create unique vocal identities for key U.S. players. The effort is topped off with excellent engineering and production. T.J.M. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
